Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority – Award of Recognition
The “e” in e-Governance stands for ‘electronic’. Thus, e-Governance is basically associated with carrying out the functions and achieving the results of governance through the utilization of ICT (Information and Communications Technology). While Governance relates to safeguarding the legal rights of all citizens, an equally important aspect is concerned with ensuring equitable access to public services to all. It also ensures government to be transparent in its dealings, accountable for its activities and faster in its responses as part of good governance.
However, this would require the government to change itself – its processes, its outlook, laws, rules and regulations and also its way of interacting with the citizens. It would also require capacity building within the government and creation of general awareness about e-Governance among the citizens. One of the G2C initiatives taken by Government of Haryana under e-governance was HRERA & HREAT for Real Estate sector. Targeted at the idea of regulating real estate sector for its harmonious growth and developmental governance, the State government has established two separate regulatory authorities, including a dedicated authority for Gurgaon region and an Appellate tribunal at Chandigarh.
The jurisdiction of HRERA, Panchkula is entire Haryana except the revenue district Gurugram. Haryana Real Estate Appellate Tribunal (HREAT) caters to entire state of Haryana. A web portal (https://haryanarera.gov.in) has been developed under section 4.3 of the Real Estate (Regulation & Development), Act, 2016 (RERA) in the same pace.
HRERA is developed by NIC Haryana team Shri Bidyut Ranjan Gohain, Scientist-F, Shri Prakash Chander Kala, Scientist-B under the able guidance of Sh. Deepak Bansal, SIO & DDG, NIC, Haryana.
